that his early support of the vietnam war was because he was "brainwashed by u.s. military and diplomats during a trip to vietnam." >> well, you know, when i came back from vietnam, i just had the greatest brainwashing that anybody can get. >> by the generals? >> when you go over to vietnam, not only the generals but by the diplomatic corps over there. >> mitt romney's own road to this presidential nomination begins in 1947. that's when he was born to george and his wife lenore. lenore had signed a contract with mgm but gave up her fledgling movie career to be a full-time mom to four children. before his political career, george was a success it will businessman. he turned around american motors in the 1950s by launching a small fuel efficient car called the rambler. the rambler still brings a smile to mitt's face whenever he runs into it on the campaign trail. .mitt comes of age during the wonder years of the '50s, time of elvis and eisenhower. >> mitt romney's childhood was not typical. he grew up in one of the wealthiest communities in the country, bloomfield hills, michigan, he grew

by the protests at the u.s. embassy in cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the u.s. post in benghazi and subsequently its annex. the last thing is the investigation is ongoing and the u.s. government is working with the libyan authorities to bring to justice those responsible for the deaths of u.s. citizens. that's reality. >> conspiracy, conspiracy, conspiracy. >> the president's most passionate moment of the week is his moment when he was defending susan rice in the press conference. he seemed like i'm standing up to a bully. he stepped out of that professorial aloof poos tour we sometimes think he's in. he seemed very animated. >> he was exactly the same in that presidential debate when he is accused of not labeling this a terrorist attack and he was fuming again in front of mitt romney. >> you want a problem come to me because i'm the problem, not the u.n. ambassador. but by the way, john mccain who wants to challenge susan rice's probity in these sort of things, where was he when they did the classified hearing about benghazi yesterday? he couldn't make it because he had a previ
suicide for the u.s. economy and so yesterday house speaker boehner and senate majority leader harry reid road tested some ideas for r reconciliati reconciliation. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. >> that all sounds pretty promising, but listen a little closer to speaker boehner's call for compromise and then you begin to hear a familiar tune. >> we aren't seeking to impose our will on the president. we're asking him to make good on his balanced approach. the president has called for a balanced approach to the deficit, a combination of spending cuts, increased ed revenues, but a balanced approach isn't balanced if it means higher taxes on small businesses that are the key to getting our economy moving again and keeping it moving. >> yes, you heard it. it's that same small business melody that we've heard from mitt romney for six years. now, thankfully silenced along with the strains of kid rock's "born free," except, of course, now the lead
to are the space they needed without all the commentary from u.s. elected officials to conduct what was a really important and catalytic diplomatic moment. >> you know, talking about having the space to actually do their jobs, republicans have been hammering the president over benghazi. frankly, they started it almost immediately after those attacks. lindsey graham today sent the president a five-page letter with a list of questions on it. here's just one example. he says, can you please account, as you did during the raid on osama bin laden's compound in pakistan, for your actions during the seven-plus hours our consulate was under attack? now, i have never heard anything so obnoxious. this is a senator asking the president of the united states to account for his whereabouts? >> well, i have to tell you, i mean, what's really disturbing is that i've always had a problem with various members of the house of representatives and senators conducting foreign policy. it's the purview of the president and secretary of state and administration to conduct our foreign policy. obviously, we have to provid
of not realizing here is a number, i want everybody to remember. 62% of all u.s. hispanics are u.s. born. you don't have to buy us by giving citizenship papers or money. it's a bigger issue. it's a matter of respect, outreach, and a concerted effort that has a solid foundation and not just disrespectful ignorant comments. >> once again we're making reference to free stuff rather than respect for people. >> indeed. lily gill va let that, toure, thank you so much. enjoy your weekends and we'll be right back. >> you're still upset that mitt romney lost. >> i don't know -- i don't understand why it happened, john. i mean, we all agree that wealthy americans are the best americans. >> well, not everybody agrees with that. >> everyone i know does. and mitt romney was the wealthy etion american or at least the wealthiest who was willing to touch your hands and lift your babies. wealthiest american or a the wealthiest who was willing to touch your hands and lift your babies. understand why it happened, to touch your hands and lift and we can save you 10% on ground shipping over the ups store. look this i
, violate pakistani air space and that sort of thing. i don't tend to think it will complicate u.s. foreign policy. i don't see it leading to any change in policy. it's just the loss of a good and very bright man. >> yeah. colonel jack, officials say that general petraeus' deputy, michael morell, will serve as interim director of the cia. what do we know about michael morell? >> very well thought of inside the organization and ems where, particularly in congress and at the white house. >> a career intelligence -- >> career intelligence -- effectively a career intelligence guy. very capable, extremely steady and very well thought of. and this is, of course, the highest position he has or will ever hold. the likelihood is he will be replaced as soon as they can find somebody who is more politically oriented, more satisfactory in a political sense to the white house, but they can leave him there for a long time doing this. he's done it for a long time and is very well thought of. >> there's a history of cia directors being rejected by the senate when their confirmation comes up. it's a very ha
, is that true, if we take that one step, we remove half the entire danger to the u.s. economy? >> yes, absolutely, martin. because the middle class actually, their spending keeps the economy going. the rich are not the job creators in america. the truth is it's the middle class and the middle class spending that justifies to businesses expanding and creating more jobs. if the middle class is squeezed by additional taxes, if the middle class loses ground as they have been losing ground because the median wage today is 8% lower adjusted for inflation than it was in 2000, if the middle class continues to lose ground, the middle class can't spend. if the middle class can't spend, then we're not going to have more jobs and we're not going to have a better recovery. it's as direct and simple as that. >> excellent. okay. that's a good answer. given the precarious position we're in, history ought to provide some lessons. so i went back to your own book "after shock" where you say the 1990s boom was not the result of a tax cut. most of it followed bill clinton's 1993 tax increase. now, mitt ro
aid, $170 million in u.s. aid. so i think that the white house feels as though it accomplished a lot of the goals that it set out. of course, the president's attentions were divided to some extend. he was there in asia you as about managing the crisis in the middle east. >> indeed. kristin, once the president has pardoned one turkey and eaten another, he's actually going to go on the road as i understand it with regard to these fiscal cliff negotiations. can you tell us any more about that? >> reporter: senior administration officials say that the president loves to be out amongst the people talking to the people, but it's also a part of selling his policies. it's part of sort of pressuring congress to get the policies that he would like passed enacted. so that will certainly be a part of the tactic he takes after the thanksgiving holiday. we expect him to meet again with congressional leaders. remember, he had that meeting here this past friday. congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle came out, both talked about the importance of cooperation, bipartisan. it surprised a lot
're william aware, and there's been a willingness by some parts of the security forces to inflame u.s./pakistani relations. some of these have been fabricated. however, there were certainly periods earlier on, and this is not a partisan issue of bush versus obama, it's more a question of experience. earlier on in the use of drones, we didn't have as much experience in how to do the tracking of people before we unleashed these weapons and we did make more mistakes. i think we've gotten a lot better and i've had some access to it which means i can't talk a lot about it which is exactly the dilemma. we have to figure out ways we can talk about this to allow some degree of informed public debate. the only broad thing i'm confident i can argue is that we've gotten a lot more careful, but there are still occasional mistakes made and we have to view this, as the colonel said, as a very high-level decision because you're never going to be 100% sure in every given case snp. >> in defense of the administration, john brennan has said that drones give us a precise ability to target our real enemi
of immigrants in the u.s. are for hispanics in particular when you look at what is that segment of the fastest growing group of small businesses, it happens to be minority-owned businesses and hispanics two times growing faster than the rest. back to what you were saying, something must be right in the mix that is allowing for new immigrants, people that come here with nothing to be able to realize the so-called american dream we think is dead but when you look at the numbers for small businesses is not dead because they are growing and they're the fastest growing segment. >> krystal, we've talked about the economy and we were talking about disparities. but on social issues, romney has said that he plans no big legislative change in relation to, for example, roe v. wade. if he's elected, do you believe him? >> well, roe v. wade isn't a legislative issue. it's a matter of who he appoints to the supreme court. >> sure. so that, therefore, is potentially in the balance. >> there is no way imaginable that he would appoint someone to the supreme court who would uphold roe v. wade. there's just no w
